The Phoenix Field area of Fair Oaks California has an interesting history!
Many people don't realize that the Sacramento area used to have a number of small airports, which have since been closed. Homes or other developments now stand where planes used to land.
One of these was Phoenix Field in Fair Oaks, California. The airport opened about 1947, had a 2600 foot long runway and a parallel taxiway. A number of people lived around the edge of the field, and they could taxi their planes from their yards to the runway.
